Writing began in earnest this week!
After a great deal of research a development, I now feel ready to get the first drafts out of my head and into the world. There is still a long way to go before the stories are ready to go to the illustrators, but I can’t do any more development until they exist in the world proper.
At time of shooting this video I had written the first draft of the first story. I have now written up the first two (almost three).
I’ve had some very useful feedback from my mentor, Karrie Fransman, and my grasp of comic writing techniques and devices is much improved for it.
I had a bit of a meltdown when I realised that two of the stories I had been developing didn’t really suit the collection, but there is so much material here at the castle that it was no chore or struggle to replace them with stories I am happier with.
